General Information 


Catholic Theological Union at Chicago was founded 
in 1967 as a creative response to the call sounded by 
Vatican II for a renewed theological education for 
priesthood. Three religious orders originally sponsored 
the school: the Franciscans of Sacred Heart Province, the 
Servites of the Eastern U.S.A. Province and the 
Passionists of Holy Cross Province. The school was 
incorporated pursuant to the laws of the State of Illinois 
in November 1967. Classes began in the fall quarter of 
1968, with a faculty of 24 and an enrollment of 108. In 
January 1972, Catholic Theological Union was accredited 
by the Association of Theological Schools. The North 
Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools 
granted accreditation in March 1972. 

Since its founding, other religious communities have 
designated Catholic Theological Union as their official 
theologate: the Augustinians (1968), the Norbertines 
(1968), the Cincinnati Province and Kansas City Province 
of the Society of the Precious Blood (1968), the Mis- 
sionaries of the Sacred Heart (1969), the Society of the 
Divine Word (1970), the Eastern Province of the Con- 
gregation of the Holy Ghost (1971), the Claretians (1972), 
the Viatorians (1972), the Xaverian Missionaries (1973), 
the Crosiers (1974), the Comboni Missionaries of the 
Heart of Jesus (1976), the Pontifical Institute for Foreign 
Missions (1976), the St. Nicholas Diocese in Chicago for 
Ukrainian Catholics (1978), the Priests of the Sacred 
Heart (1979), the Assumption Province of the Franciscans 
(1980), the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament (1980), 
the St. Paul of the Cross Province of the Passionists (1981), 
the Capuchins (1982), the St. John the Baptist Province 
of the Franciscans (1982), the Society of St. Columban 
(1984), the Redemptorist Fathers and Brothers (1984), the 
Central United States Province of the Missionary Oblates 
of Mary Immaculate (1985), the Western Province of the 
Congregation of the Holy Ghost (1985), the Oratorians 
(1987), the Maryknoll Missioners (1988), the St. John the 
Baptist Province of the Missionary Oblates of Mary Im- 
maculate (1988), and the St. Bonaventure Province of the 
Franciscaii Conventuals (1988). 


















Catholic Theological Union is unique among schools 
of theology and seminaries. It is not a coalition of in- 
dependent schools. Rather, the participating orders closed 
their individual theologates and merged their resources 
into one school with one administration and faculty. 
Control is vested in the Board of Trustees. The school has 
the advantage of unity of administration and breadth of 
tradition and support and has been accepted by its peers 
in the world of theological education. 

Catholic Theological Union is the largest Roman 
Catholic school of theology in the United States, serving 
32 provinces and abbeys of religious men as an official 
theologate. It also serves other students, lay and religious, 
in the preparation for ministry. One out of every eight 
religious priesthood candidates in the United States is 
educated at Catholic Theological Union. 

A living sense of purpose guides a school more effec- 
tively than any written statement. From the very begin- 
ning, it was understood that Catholic Theological Union 
would be a school of ministry. Theology would be directed 
to practice. The by-laws concisely stated this objective: 
to train and teach aspirants to the Roman Catholic 
priesthood so that they may be fully qualified to meet the 
requirements of such priesthood. 

As a school grows, a periodic review of its purposes 
is necessary. In 1991, Catholic Theological Union reviewed 
its goals and adopted a new Identity and Mission Statement: 


Catholic Theological Union is a graduate school of theology and 
ministry sponsored by Roman Catholic religious institutes and societies 
of apostolic life. In response to the renewal of the Second Vatican Coun- 
cil, the school's founders chose to unite their seminaries in order to 
educate more creatively for the religious priesthood and to locate the 
school near other graduate schools of theology and the University of 
Chicago in order that students and faculty may benefit from and con- 
tribute to theological scholarship and ministerial formation in an ur- 
ban, ecumenical and university setting. Reflecting the diverse cultures, 
nationalities and races of the women and men who make up the CTU 
community, the school sees the pursuit of justice, inclusivity and col- 
laboration as integral to its ethos. 




The primary mission of CathoHc Theological Union is the academic 
and pastoral formation of students preparing for the priesthood and 
for a variety of other ministries in the United States and around the 
world. The school also provides continuing theological education for 

clergy, religious and lay persons. CTU is committed to theological educa- 
tion and scholarship within a community of faith in interaction with 
a living Catholic tradition and ecumenical, interfaith and cross-cultural 
perspectives and resources. Through its degree programs and other educa- 
tional and formational opportunities CTU strives to educate effective 
leaders for the church whose mission is to witness Christ's good news 
of justice, love and peace to people of all nations. 

The central focus of Catholic Theological Union is 
the priesthood candidate. In the spirit of the Program of 
Priestly Formation, the school has adapted its programs 
to the present needs of church and society. Today, such 
adaptation involves an additional commitment to educa- 
tion for the wide variety of ministries emerging in the 
church, for women and men, religious and lay, as well as 
continuing education for those already involved in 
ministry, both ordained and non-ordained. Half of 
Catholic Theological Union's current students are among 
those preparing for such ministries or are in programs of 
continuing education for their current ministries. 


Catholic Theological Union is located in Hyde Park 
on Chicago's south side. This is a cosmopolitan, stably 
integrated community, with a strong sense of identity. 
Within walking distance are shopping centers, theaters, 
restaurants, churches, parks, the Lake Michigan beaches 
and the Museum of Science and Industry. Downtown 
Chicago is fifteen minutes away by car or rapid transit. 
More importantly. Catholic Theological Union is close 
to the Divinity School of the University of Chicago and 
to several schools of theology in the area: Chicago 
Theological Seminary, Lutheran School of Theology at 
Chicago, Meadville/Lombard Theological School and 
McCormick Theological Seminary. 


Catholic Theological Union occupies three buildings 
on Cornell Avenue. Seven floors of the ten-story building 
at 5401 South Cornell Avenue provide space for 
classrooms, administrative and faculty offices, library, 
dining and lounge facilities, meeting rooms and audio- 
visual laboratory. Additional office and classroom 
facilities are located in the building at 5326 South Cornell. 

Living quarters for some of the religious communities 
of men occupy three floors of the building at 5401 South 





Cornell Avenue. Living quarters for other students are 
located in the 5326 and 5420 buildings. Both efficiency 
and one-bedroom apartments are available. 


The Catholic Theological Union Library contains 
96,000 volumes, providing resources for study and 
research by students and faculty members. It currently 
receives over 540 periodicals. In addition to the general 
theological holdings, the library has special collections in 
mission studies, history of religions and homiletics. 

The Association of Chicago Theological Schools' 
Hbraries, one of the largest theological bibliographical 
resources in the Western hemisphere, consisting of more 



than 1,200,000 volumes in theology and allied fields, are 
available to students enrolled in CTU. A courier service 
circulates books and periodicals for inter-library loans. 

CTU's membership in the Association of Chicago 
Theological Schools, the Chicago Library System, the Il- 
linois Library Computer System Organization and the On- 
line Catalog Library Cooperative allows library patrons 
access to other library resources in the city of Chicago, 
the state of Illinois and the rest of the nation. 


From its earliest days, Chicago has been a major 
cosmopolitan center, with its many neighborhoods 
representing a wide variety of racial and ethnic groups, 
as well as a broad spectrum of cultural and religious 

In recent years, Chicago has also become one of the 
largest centers of theological education in the world. Its 
12 seminaries with over 4000 students and 400 faculty and 
its diverse possibilities for interfaith exchange make 
Chicago an unequalled resource for the study of theology 
and ministry. 

Catholic Theological Union enjoys a variety of col- 
laborative relationships with the other theological institu- 
tions of the city through two distinctive interlocking 

The school works closely with four other institutions 
in Hyde Park, who together form the Hyde Park Cluster 
of Theological Schools. The other institutions are the 
Chicago Theological Seminary (United Church of Christ), 
Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, Mead ville/ Lom- 
bard Theological School (Unitarian/Universalist Associa- 
tion) and McCormick Theological Seminary (Presbyterian 
Church, USA). The Hyde Park Cluster works to develop 
coordinated and joint programming as well as other 
academic services to students and faculty. 

The Association of Chicago Theological Schools 
represents another form of collaboration. Its membership 
includes the five Hyde Park schools plus Bethany Theo- 
logical Seminary (Church of the Brethren) and Northern 
Baptist Theological Seminary, both located in the western 
suburbs, and five northside schools, Garrett-Evangelical 
Theological Seminary (United Methodist), North Park 
Theological Seminary (Evangelical Covenant), Saint Mary 
of the Lake University (Roman Catholic), Seabury- 
Western Theological Seminary (Episcopal) and Trinity 
Evangelical Divinity School (Evangelical Free Church). 
The Association fosters student cross-registration, coor- 
dination of library access and acquisition, faculty discus- 
sion and communication among the schools. It offers to 






the 4000 students in its 12 schools more than 1000 courses 
annually and library collections in excess of 1.2 million 
volumes, with nearly 5000 currently received periodical 
subscriptions. Further information on the Association 
may be found in the current edition of its Announcements. 

The participating institutions in each of these groups 
maintain educational autonomy and grant their own 
degrees. Each school also preserves its confessional iden- 
tity and theological traditions. Catholic Theological 
Union's participation follows the guidelines set down in 
the Ecumenical Directory of the Secretariat for Promoting 
Christian Unity and in the Program of Priestly Forma- 
tion of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops. 

Students may enroll in courses in any of these 12 
schools without additional tuition or registration charge 
upon approval of their academic advisors and the 
registrar. They enjoy library privileges in these schools at 
no charge. 









Catholic Theological Union is located near the cam- 
pus of the University of Chicago, one of the great research 
institutions in the world. Its Divinity School is renowned 
for historical research and the preparation of teaching 

A special plan of biregistration permits CTU students 
to register for courses in the University at a substantial 
reduction of tuition. 

By special arrangement, certain M.Div. students may 
pursue a coordinated sequence of study whereby they may 
receive the M.Div. degree from Catholic Theological 
Union and the Ph.D. degree thereafter from the Univer- 
sity of Chicago's Divinity School. A dual A.M. in Social 
Work /M.Div. can be earned by collaboration between the 
U.C. School of Social Service Administration and CTU. 
Details on these arrangements may be found in the M.Div. 
section of the catalog. 


In 1968 the Jewish Chautauqua Society established a 
resident lectureship in Judaism at CTU for the purpose 
of providing offerings in Jewish studies in the curriculum. 
Hayim Goren Perelmuter, Rabbi Emeritus of Congregation 


K.A.M. Isaiah Israel and past President of the Chicago 
Board of Rabbis, has served as Chautauqua Professor of 
Jewish Studies at CTU since 1968. 


The Northern Province of the Society of the Divine Word 
estabhshed the Divine Word Scholar-in-Residence in 1976 
to bring instructors from other countries to teach at CTU. 
These lecturers offer courses for one or more quarters 
during the academic year. Other participating com- 
munities at CTU have periodically supported visiting 
lectureships to enrich the offerings in the school's 


Stauros, U.S.A. is an ecumenical, not-for-profit 
organization which promotes studies and programs on 
specific areas of human suffering. Stauros, U.S.A. has 
been located at CTU since 1981. Stauros engages in 
dialogue with the suffering, with the helping professions 
and with religious traditions. A major activity is the 
publication of the bi-monthly Stauros Notebook. Its 
articles focus on various forms of suffering and are drawn 
from Scripture, theology and personal experience. A 
strong focus of Stauros, U.S.A. is ministry to and with 
persons who are disabled. 

Stauros is sponsored by the Passionist Congregation. 
It traces its beginnings to 1972 in Belgium; the Interna- 
tional Secretariat is located in Louvain. Stauros Interna- 
tional produces a specialized bibliography pertaining to 
the Passion and to suffering. Harry Gielen, C.P. , is the 
Director of the International Secretariat. Ardis Cloutier, 
O.S.F. , the Executive Director of Stauros, U.S.A., is 
a graduate of Catholic Theological Union.

The cost of education at Catholic Theological Union 
may exceed the financial resources of some students. The 
school offers financial aid derived from various scholar- 
ship funds to offset some of these costs. This aid is 
available to students who are undertaking degree programs 
and is given in the form of tuition remission grants. The 
school also assists students in applying for federal loans 
for graduate level study. In addition, there are oppor- 
tunities for student employment. 


All financial aid is awarded in quarterly increments 
for a period of one year or less. Awards are renewable 
based on applications submitted annually in the spring 
of the year. Matriculating students must submit a finan- 
cial aid application with their application for admission. 
Awards are scheduled as follows: 

Returning Students 
Matriculating Students 

— March 15 

— Initial awards for Fall quar- 
ter are made by May 1. 

— Other awards are made 60 
days prior to the beginning 
of the quarter 


In addition to the general scholarship fund, the follow- 
ing specialized funds and programs exist: 

Through the International Women Scholarship Fund 
CTU offers a limited number of one-year scholarships 



covering tuition, housing and books to international 
women seeking credentials for Roman Catholic ministry 
in their own country. 

The McCauley Scholarship Fund is designated for 
women students of ministry at CTU. 

The Augustus Tolton Scholarship Fund supports 
African American students preparing for ministry in the 
Archdiocese of Chicago. 

The Carroll Stuhlmueller Scholarship Fund con- 
tributes to the support of students in the area of biblical 
spirituality. First priority is given to international women. 

Students engaged in ministry who receive tuition 
grants from their agency or parish may qualify for CTU 
matching grants in the form of tuition remission. 
Interested students should consult the Dean of Students. 



Student Life 

The Dean of Students and Community Services 
is the administration's representative for matters of stu- 
dent hfe at CathoHc Theological Union. The Dean of 
Students and Community Services works with the Stu- 
dent Executive Committee and the Formation Council and 
serves as liaison between these bodies and the administra- 
tion. The Dean facilitates networking among the various 
communities and individuals who comprise the Catholic 
Theological Union. The participating communities of the 
Union provide for the spiritual formation of their 
members; the Dean of Students provides opportunities 
and assistance to other students not sponsored by the par- 
ticipating communities ("independent students") in their 
integration of study, ministry and personal growth. 

The Student Services Office offers a broad range of 
assistance to CTU students and personnel. These services 
include information on spiritual direction and counsel- 
ing resources, CTU scholarship programs and Stafford 
Loans, ministry placement, health insurance and immigra- 
tion forms. Student Services handles housing for indepen- 
dent students and other CTU residents. The office is a 













clearing house for scheduling and publicizing school 
events. The office serves as liaison with the University of 
Chicago Health Service and recreational facilities. 

These services and other opportunities are detailed in 
the Catholic Theological Union Student Handbook, 
available from the Dean of Students and Community 




The basic organ of student opinion and action at 
Catholic Theological Union is the Student Executive 
Committee. The SEC coordinates various areas of stu- 
dent responsibility and participation in Catholic 
Theological Union life. Through its representatives on the 
CTU Senate, on the Student Affairs Committee of the 
Board of Trustees and on principal school committees, 
the SEC communicates student viewpoints on issues of 
school policy and direction. Representatives of the 
participating communities and of the independent 
students compose the SEC; additionally, those students 
appointed to the various school committees serve on this 
body. A president and vice-president elected by the entire 
student body head the SEC. The Student Executive Com- 
mittee represents the students in matters dealing with the 
faculty and administration, as well as student concerns 
in the other schools of the Association of Chicago 
Theological Schools. The SEC works closely with the 
Dean of Students and Community Services. 


The directors of formation of all the participating 
communities at Catholic Theological Union and the Dean 
of Students compose the Formation Council. The 
Council serves as a forum through which the directors 
share insights and experiences regarding spiritual 
formation. In certain instances the Formation Council 
may agree on common policies in matters which affect 
the religious well-being of the student body, particularly 
students from the participating religious communities, and 
make recommendations to the administration. Formation 
directors may engage in the academic life of the school 
by attending faculty meetings, serving on school commit- 
tees and, in particular cases, by holding joint appoint- 
ments as CTU faculty and community formation staff. 


The Formation Council also places two representatives on 
the Cathohc Theological Union Senate. 


In the matter of academic guidance, each student is 
assigned an academic advisor. 

The participating communities of CTU generally pro- 
vide resources in the area of counsehng and spiritual 
direction for their student members. For independent 
students, referral for counseling and spiritual direction 
is available through the office of the Dean of Students 
and Community Services. 

All students are welcome to liturgies offered by par- 
ticipating communities and groups of independent 
students. Additionally, through its Liturgy Committee, 
CTU sponsors all-school liturgies several times per 
quarter. These celebrations are important features of the 
school's life as a faith community. 


Participating communities provide housing for their 
own students. Housing for independent students is 
available at 5326 and 5420 South Cornell. Students 
desiring to lease the efficiency or one-bedroom units in 
these buildings should make application through the Dean 
of Students and Community Services. Housing requests 
should be made as soon as possible after admission to 
the school and not later than 30 days prior to the 
beginning of the quarter. If CTU housing is unavailable, 
the Dean of Students and Community Services will assist 
students searching for other suitable accommodations. 

Several of the religious communities of men have their 
residence in the 5401 South Cornell building. Private 
rooms with baths are available in the 5401 building to other 
male students as well. A residents' lounge is available for 
independent students in the 5401 and 5326 buildings. 
Inquiries as to availability of CTU residences should be 
directed to the Dean of Students and should be received at 
least 30 days prior to the beginning of a quarter. 









Catholic Theological Union has a cafeteria-style food 
service which is open to all school personnel. Meals may 
be purchased on a quarterly contract or a meal-ticket plan. 
Residents in 5401 are required to be on the food service. 

Housing and food service prices are subject to periodic 
review and change. Information on current charges is 
available on request. 


Recreational facilities are available nearby as well as 
throughout the city. At a short distance from the school, 
the majestic Lake Michigan shoreline provides an apt set- 
ting for meditation, walking, jogging and cycling. Beaches 
and parks for studying, sunning, picnicking and general 
enjoyment are all within a few blocks. Golf is available 
in nearby Jackson Park; tennis courts can be found at 
Jackson Park as well as close-at-hand Cornell Park. 
Indoor facilities in the area offer opportunities for swim- 
ming, racquetball, tennis and fitness exercise. The SEC 
sponsors weekly volleyball games. On payment of an 
annual fee. Catholic Theological Union students are 
eligible to use the University of Chicago's extensive 
athletic facilities. 


General Regulations 


Catholic Theological Union is a graduate school of 
ministry in the Roman Catholic tradition. All its programs 
are open to serious and qualified students, male or female, 
who wish to prepare for ministries in this tradition. 

Pre-Theological Studies 

Pre-theological studies have been the object of 
extensive research and consultation in recent years. Both 
the Program of Priestly Formation and the Association 
of Theological Schools give guidehnes about the 
understandings and skills prerequisite to theological 
education. CTU concurs with these statements and has 
adapted its admission requirements and regulations to 
their spirit. 






General Admission Requirements 

The following are needed for general admission to CTU: 

— A bachelor's degree or its equivalent from an ap- 
proved college or university. 

— A completed application form. 

The application form may be obtained from the 
Admissions Office. Applications from students 
of participating communities are due April 15. 
Applications from all other students are due six 
weeks prior to the quarter in which students plan 
to enter CTU. Late applications are accepted, but 
no guarantee is given that the apphcant will be

Continuing education and special student appli- 
cants need to submit one official transcript only. 

— Letters of Recommendation. 

For a degree or for studies leading to a degree or 
certificate, three letters are required. 

In the case of priests and deacons or members 
of religious institutes which are not participating 
communities of CTU, one of these letters must 
be from an official representative of their diocese 
or institute. 

Applicants from CTU's participating commu- 
nities need not submit letters, since permission 
from a participating community constitutes 
adequate recommendation. If the community 
withdraws its sponsorship or if the student leaves 
the community, CTU requires the presentation 
of three letters of reference and a new applica- 
tion requesting re-admission. 

For continuing education or special student status, 
one letter is required. 

This letter must come from a person who can 


testify to the applicant's ability to undertake 
graduate study in ministerial education. 

Again, applicants from CTU's participating 
communities need not submit this letter. 

— In the case of international students, a letter of finan- 
cial support or personal guarantee of payment must 
be submitted. 

CTU reserves the right to require personal interviews 
with admissions officials and formal evaluation of 

Upon admission students must comply with lUinois 
state immunization requirements. 


Student Classification 

Students are admitted to studies toward degree pro- 
grams after completion of admission requirements of the 
respective programs. They may apply for degree candidacy 
after completion of more than 25% but less than 33% 
of study toward the respective degree. Specific re- 
quirements for degree candidacy in the various degree pro- 
grams are listed in the respective program manuals. 

Generally, persons already engaged in ministry who 
are seeking further professionalization and updating but 
are not choosing another degree program enroll in the 
continuing education program. 

Special student status is normally reserved to those 
who have not yet decided on a degree program or who 
are enrolling for a specific and closely defined objective 
such as courses for initial formation purposes or cross- 
cultural mission preparation. Renewal of special student 
status beyond one year is contingent upon the recommen- 
dation of instructors at CTU and review by the Admis- 
sion Committee. 

Students enrolling for at least nine hours per quarter 
are classified as full-time students. All others are part- 
time students. 


Registration takes place in advance of the quarter on 
the dates announced in the academic calendar. Late 
registration is allowed on the dates so designated in the calen- 
dar. Registration after these dates cannot be guaranteed. 




Changes in Registration 

Changes in registration are allowed through the first 
week of the quarter without academic or financial penalty. 
After the first week, refund policies for withdrawals apply. 
(See "REFUND POLICY," p. 12) 

Class Schedule and Course Load 

Catholic Theological Union operates on a quarter 
system, with three eleven-week quarters per year. Most 
courses are offered for 3 quarter credit hours, and meet 
150 minutes per week for 10 weeks, with the eleventh week 
for study and examinations. Classes are scheduled Mon- 
day through Thursday during the day. Courses are also 
offered some evenings and weekends. 

The normal course load is 4 courses (12 credit hours) 
per quarter. Students may register for an additional course 
with the permission of their academic advisor. 

Course offerings are arranged so that one may pur- 
sue an M . A . P. S . or M . A . degree in most areas of con- 
centration completely by means of evening and weekend 
courses. These courses are scheduled on a three-year cycle. 

Grading and Standards of Progress 

Grades are given at the end of each quarter and 
published by the Registrar. The student's academic ad- 
visor keeps a checklist of advancement toward comple- 
tion of hour and area requirements. 

CTU uses a letter grade system or for some courses 
a pass-fail system. Grades are given and computed 
according to the following schedule: 

four quality points 
three quality points 
two quality points 
one quality point 
no quality points 



















Withdrew passing 





Withdrew failing 







Permanent Incon 


Students must have a minimum of 3.0 cumulative 
quality point average in a degree program in order to 
graduate. Students falling below this cumulative average 
for two consecutive quarters are subject to probation. 
Students failing to show improvement are subject to 
dismissal unless there are extenuating circumstances. 

CTU reserves the right to dismiss students whose 
academic progress or whose adjustment to the school is 
unsatisfactory. Students dismissed for poor scholarship 
cannot be readmitted to the degree program. 


Students may withdraw from any course up to the end 
of the seventh week of the quarter with permission of their 
advisor. They must follow the procedures outlined by the 
Registrar's Office. After the seventh week, the grade 
"WP" or "WF" will be entered on their transcript for 
courses from which they have withdrawn. Refund policies 
outlined by the Business Office will be applied (see p. 12). 


Students who fail to finish work by a quarter's end 
may petition an instructor for an extension of time up 
to the end of the next quarter. If work is not completed 
by that time, the instructor will give either an "F" or a 
"PI" for no credit. The course may be repeated but the 
student must register and pay tuition again according to 
the normal procedures of the school. 

Petitions for extensions and copies of the policy and 
procedures on incompletes are available in the Registrar's 


No credit is given for a course in which a student 
receives an "F." If the course is required, it must be suc- 
cessfully completed before the student takes courses for 
which it is a prerequisite or before graduation. 

Transfer of Credit 

Previously earned graduate credit in theology may be 
transferred to Catholic Theological Union. Ordinarily, no 
more than 9 hours may be transferred into M.A. and 
M . A . P. S . programs; no more than 36 quarter credits may 
be transferred into the M . Div. program. No credits from 



courses graded below "B" can be transferred. Decisions 
about credit transfers are made by the degree program 
directors. Credits will be recognized only after the stu- 
dent has successfully completed one year of academic 
work at CTU. 

Advanced Standing 

Students entering M . Div. and M . A . P. S . programs 
may petition to receive advanced standing for previous 
work done in foundational areas. If the petition is granted, 
hours in those foundational areas then become elective. 
Petitions for advanced standing are to be directed to the 
program director who approves and forwards them to the 
Office of the Academic Dean. 

Credit by Examination 

Credit by examination may be sought in many foun- 
dational areas and in select advanced areas in the M . Div. 
and M.A.P. S. programs. Procedures for seeking credit 
by examination are outlined in the M . A . P. S . and M . Div. 


Credit by Cross-Registration 

Students enrolled at Catholic Theological Union enjoy 
the possibility of enrolling in a number of other Chicago 
theological schools. They may enroll (at no additional 
tuition charge) at any of the eleven other member schools 
of the Association of Chicago Theological Schools 
(Bethany Theological Seminary, Chicago Theological 
Seminary, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, 
Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, McCormick 
Theological Seminary, Meadville/Lombard Theological 
School, North Park Theological Seminary, Northern 
Baptist Theological Seminary, St. Mary of the Lake 
University, Seabury-Western Theological Seminary and 
Trinity Evangelical Divinity School). 

CTU students may also enroll in courses at the Univer- 
sity of Chicago with significant reduction in tuition. 
Details may be obtained from the Registrar's Office. 


Credit for courses taken in the schools mentioned 
above may be appHed toward CTU degree requirements. 
Up to one-third of a student 's work may be done in these 
schools; by special arrangement this may be increased to 


















Academic Programs 

Catholic Theological Union is a graduate school of 
theology and ministry. Program options include Master 
of Divinity, Master of Arts in Theology, Master of Arts 
in Pastoral Studies, Doctor of Ministry and Certificates 
in Biblical Spirituality, Liturgical Studies or in Pastoral 

The school's central mission is the academic and 
pastoral formation of students preparing for the 
priesthood and for a variety of other ministries in the 
United States and around the world. 

The educational process also aims to be responsive to 
the larger cultural and religious pluralism of the world 
reflected in the school's international student body, in the 
ecumenical association of theological schools and the ur- 
ban context within which the school carries on its study 
of theology and ministry. Accordingly, in its curriculum 
and common life, the school seeks to foster cross-cultural 
awareness and sensitivity, ecumenical and inter-faith 
dialogue and concern for peace, justice and the equality 
of all people. 

More specific curricular objectives are given with each 
of the degree programs. 


Aim of the Program 

CTU's Master of Divinity degree is a graduate pro- 
fessional program. The program is open both to can- 
didates for the ordained ministry and to lay and religious 
women and men who will not be ordained. It seeks to 
prepare candidates for pastoral leadership in a pluralistic 
world in a variety of ministerial contexts. 


The M . Div. program combines theological education, 
guided ministerial experience, and structures for in- 
tegrative reflection. As a flrst professional degree, the 
M.Div. aims to provide a generalist preparation for 
ministry, while allowing for some concentration within 
its broad framework. 

The M.Div. degree attests that its bearer has attained 
an initial readiness to engage in full-time pastoral ministry 
in the Roman Catholic Church. In this context, "initial 
readiness" means that the graduate has appropriated the 
Catholic tradition, possesses the ability to communicate 
it effectively and to engage in pastoral practice faithful 
to it, and is aware of the need for ongoing education and 
formation in ministry. 

Admission Requirements 

In addition to the general admission requirements 
outlined above, the following are normally prerequisite 
for admission to the M.Div. program: 

— fifteen semester hours of philosophy (these will 
provide adequate exposure to the major historical 
periods of philosophical thought; other recom- 
mended areas are philosophical anthropology, 
epistemology, and metaphysics) 

— three semester hours in sociology 

— six semester hours in psychology (experimental 
psychology and personality theory are recom- 

Students intending to come to CTU are advised to 
consider other areas important for ministry: e.g., the 
classical roots of their own cultures and traditions and 
languages such as Latin and Greek. Entering students 
must also possess facility in reading, writing and speak- 
ing English. 

Program Options and Requirements 

The program is divided into foundational and advanced 
areas. Requirements on the foundational level are com- 
mon for all M . Div. candidates and include courses, col- 
loquia and, normally, supervised ministry experience, 
totaling 3'6 quarter hours. 





Requirements on the advanced level include courses, 
supervised ministry experience with a concomitant col- 
loquium and the integrating seminar. In most instances, 
the course requirements are by area rather than by specific 

On the advanced level, candidates may choose between 
two tracks for their program. The first track is particularly 
suited to the needs of lay and religious women and men 
who will not be ordained. This track requires a total of 
72 quarter hours beyond the 36 quarter hours required 
on the foundational level. The second track seeks to 
implement faithfully the guidelines of the 1981 Program 
of Priestly Formation and is designed for priesthood 
candidates. This track requires a total of 105 quarter hours 
beyond the 36 quarter hours of foundational courses. The 
M . Div. program of individual students in either of these 
tracks can also be tailored or expanded to fulfill the 
requirements of a sponsoring agency or religious com- 
munity and the needs of the student's future ministry.

36 quarter credit hours of academic work at CTU. Track 
II students must apply for candidacy after completing 
between 36 and 48 quarter credit hours of academic work 
at CTU. 

Advisement and Administration 

Students work with an academic advisor to determine 
the particular shape and requirements of their M.Div. 

Full regulations and procedures regarding the M . Div. 
degree are contained in the M. Div. Manual. The M . Div. 
program is administered by Robert Moosbrugger, O.M.I., 
Director, to whom inquiries should be addressed. 




CTU participates in a cooperative Master of Divinity 
degree program with the Ecumenical Theological Center 
in Detroit and a cluster of members of the Association 
of Chicago Theological Schools, including Garrett- 
Evangelical Theological Seminary, McCormick 
Theological Seminary and Seabury-Western Theological 

Courses are offered in Detroit at the Ecumenical 
Theological Center by faculty of the four cooperating 
schools and the Center. Students register for courses at 
the Center and apply through the Admissions Office of 
the cooperating school of their choice to become a Master 
of Divinity degree candidate. Approximately two-thirds 
of the curriculum can be accomplished in Detroit. 
Students matriculating at CTU through the Ecumenical 
Theological Center in Detroit must meet CTU admission 
requirements. Granting of the CTU Master of Divinity 
degree is contingent upon the student's fulfilling all rele- 
vant CTU degree requirements. 

Further information concerning this cooperative pro- 
gram can be obtained from the M . Div. Director at CTU 
who is a member of the steering committee administer- 
ing the program or by contacting the Ecumenical 
Theological Center, 8425 West McNichols Road, Detroit, 
Michigan 48221-2599 (313/342-4600). 






CTU and the University of Chicago School of Social 
Service Administration collaborate in a program of study 
to enable students interested in developing dual compe- 
tency in social work and ministry to earn both the A . M . 
degree from the University of Chicago and the M.Div. 
degree from Catholic Theological Union in one academic 
year less than if they completed both degree programs 

Applicants to this dual degree program must meet the 
entrance requirements and follow the application 
procedures of Catholic Theological Union and the Univer- 
sity of Chicago School of Social Service Administration. 
Further details on this dual program may be obtained 
from the M.Div. Director at CTU or from the Dean of 
Students at the U.C. School of Social Service Administra- 
tion. More information on the School of Social Service 
Administration may be found in the current issue of its 


By a special arrangement with the University of 
Chicago, select M.Div. students from Catholic 
Theological Union may pursue a coordinated sequence 
of programs leading to the M.Div. degree at Catholic 
Theological Union and the Ph.D. degree at the Univer- 
sity of Chicago Divinity School. 

Upon receiving written approval of the Academic 
Dean of Catholic Theological Union, the student may 
enter this sequence. While pursuing the regular course of 
study in the M.Div. program, the student prepares for 
the three certifying examinations and writes an essay on 
religious studies in the modern world. These requirements 
constitute the preliminary phase of doctoral study at the 
University. The certifying examinations cover the follow- 
ing areas: Sacred Scriptures of Judaism, Christianity and 
Islam; Western Religious Traditions to 1500; and Religion 
in the West, 1500-1900. 

Each year the Divinity School faculty selects a par- 
ticular topic for the essay in religious studies. The school 
also offers a two-course sequence annually in preparation 
for this essay. Students are encouraged, but not required, 
to take this sequence. 




Application for the Ph.D. program includes com- 
pletion of at least two quarters of bi-registration at the 
University, enrolling in at least two 400-level courses at 
the University of Chicago Divinity School; successful 
completion of the three certifying examinations, the 
religious studies essay and a French or German language 
examination administered by the University of Chicago. 

M.Div. students may apply for the Ph.D. program 
when they have completed the requirements above and 
have completed two years of the M.Div. program. Ap- 
pHcation to the Ph.D. program does not constitute ad- 
mission. Applications from this sequence will be con- 
sidered along with other applications to the Ph. D. pro- 
gram in the Divinity School. If accepted, the student 
matriculates into the Ph . D. program within one year and 
takes at least two courses in that program thereafter until 
admitted to Ph.D. candidacy. If rejected, the student may 
apply for an M.A. in the University, if the regular 
curricular and financial obligations are met. 

Students must complete the M . Div. before the Ph . D. 
can be awarded. The student may petition to have a facul- 
ty member from CathoHc Theological Union serve as an 
additional examiner in the oral portion of the qualifying 
examinations and also serve as a member of the disserta- 
tion reading committee. 

Students may apply credit received in University 
courses to the M.Div. degree in the usual arrangements 
with neighboring institutions. Successful completion of 
the certifying examinations and essay may be substituted 
for the M.Div. Integrating Seminar. Choice of elective 
courses and the field of doctoral study may allow adjust- 
ment in M . Div. course distribution requirements with the 
approval of the M . Div. Director after consultation with 
the Academic Dean and appropriate departments. 

Further details on this sequence may be obtained from 

]yf ^ Diy, / PH . D. ^^^ Dean's Office. More information on Ph . D. programs 
at the University of Chicago Divinity School may be 
found in the current issue of its Announcements. 





Catholic Theological Union offers two types of M.A. 
in Theology degree: the Research M.A. and the General 
Academic M.A. In either one, students may choose to con- 
centrate in biblical studies (a concentration on both 
testaments or a focus on either Old or New Testament), 
church history, ethics, liturgy, pastoral theology, 
spirituality, systematic theology or world mission. 

Both M.A. programs are marked by flexibility with 
a wide variety of individually tailored programs. When 
they apply for admission to the program, normally by the 
middle of the quarter preceding admission, the candidates 
specify their degree objectives. To initiate the degree pro- 
gram, a candidate meets with the M.A. Director who 
assists in selecting a major area and attends to the 
appointment of an M.A, advisor. With the advisor the 
student plans the M.A. program in detail. The advisor 
also helps the student evaluate progress and decide on any 
needed program modifications. 

Interested and eligible students may pursue the M.A. 
concurrently with the M.Div. 






Admission Requirements 

In addition to the general admission requirements of 
the school, M.A. applicants must have completed 18 
semester hours or 27 quarter hours of theology. This latter 
requirement can be fulfilled by study in foundational areas 
at CTU or by an undergraduate major in theology or 
religious studies from an accredited college, university or 
seminary, provided that the Academic Dean, in consulta- 
tion with the M.A. Director and appropriate faculty 
members, judges this to be equivalent. Once the prere- 
quisites have been met, the M.A. program will usually 
take two years. It must normally be completed within 
seven years after formal admittance to the program. 


Aim of the Program 

The Research M.A. in theology is designed to pro- 
vide the theological background for those who wish to 
prepare for entrance into a doctoral program in theology 
or to teach reHgion at a secondary or college level and /or 
to develop greater academic expertise in the area of 
theological studies. 

Program Requirements 

The Research M.A. program requirements consist of 
courses, language certification, comprehensive examina- 
tions and thesis. 

Course Requirements 

Course work is divided as follows: 

1. Eight upper division (400 or 500 level) courses in 

the student's area of specialization 24 hours 

, 2. Two upper division courses in each of two other 

theological disciplines 12 hours 

The student must maintain a "B" (3.0) average; 
dismissal from the program is automatic if a student 
receives a grade below "C" or more than two "C's." 

A certain number of courses may be transferred from 
previous graduate theological study or taken at other 
schools in the Association of Chicago Theological Schools 
(See M.A. Manual for details). No courses with grades 
below "B" may be transferred into the program. 

Language Certification 

Students are required to be certified during coursework 
in one modern foreign language (preferably French or 
German). In addition, students in the department of 
Historical and Doctrinal Studies are required to be 
certified in Latin and students in Biblical Studies or Old 
or New Testament are required to be certified in Hebrew 
and Greek. Language competence shall be demonstrated 
as early as possible within the program. Language courses 
are taught regularly in the Hyde Park area. 

Comprehensive Examinations 

The comprehensive examination for the Research 
M . A . is a two-part examination in which the candidates 
demonstrate their grasp of theological method and the 
content of the disciplines included within the scope of 
their program. The content and approach for which the 
student will be responsible in the comprehensives is deter- 
mined by the student and the board of examiners within 
the general prescriptions of the M . A . program. A student 
may take the comprehensive examination two times; upon 
receipt of a petition from the student, the comprehensive 
board may allow a third attempt. 


The final requirement for the Research M.A. is a 
thesis in which candidates demonstrate the ability to do 
competent work in their field characterized by research 
skills in method and critical thought. The thesis shall be 
75 to 125 pages in length and conform to one of the 
manuals of style approved by Catholic Theological Union. 

Final Recommendation 

The M.A. Director will determine the candidate's 
cumulative grade, based on course work (one halO, com- 
prehensive examination (one quarter) and thesis (one 

quarter). An appropriate recommendation will then be 

made to the dean and faculty for the conferring of the ^ a 
degree. ^ ]__ 



Aim of the Program 

The General Academic M . A . in Theology is designed 
to provide the theological background for those who wish 
to teach religion at a secondary or college level or to 
develop greater academic expertise in the area of 
theological studies. The General Academic M. A. is not 
intended as preparation for doctoral work. 

Program Requirements 

The General Academic M.A. program requirements 
consist of courses and comprehensive examination. The 
Department of Biblical Languages and Literature requires, 
in addition, a basic knowledge of Biblical Hebrew and 
Greek for students whose major area of concentration is 
Biblical Studies or Old or New Testament. 

Course Requirements 

Course work is divided as follows: 

L Ten upper division (400 or 500 level) courses in the 
student's area of specialization 30 hours 

2. Four upper division courses in another theological 
discipline j . 12 hours 

3. One upper division course in one other theological 
discipline 3 hours 

The student must maintain a "B" (3.0) average. 
Dismissal from the program is automatic if a student 
receives a grade below a "C" or more than two "C's." 

A certain number of courses may be transferred from 
previous graduate theological studies or may be taken at 
other schools in the Association of Chicago Theological 
Schools (See M.A. Manual for details). No courses with 
grades below "B" may be transferred into the program. 

Comprehensive Examination 

The comprehensive examination for the General 
Academic M.A. is a two-part examination in which the 
student demonstrates a grasp of the state of the question 
of the content of the discipHnes included within the 

student 's scope of study. The content of the examination 

^ \ is determined by the student and the board of examiners 

' within the general prescriptions of the General Academic 


M.A. program. A student may take the comprehensive 
examination two times; upon receipt of a petition from 
the student, the comprehensive board may allow a third 

Final Recommendation 

The M.A. Director will determine the student's 
cumulative grade, based on course work (one halO and 
comprehensive examination (one half). The director then 
makes a recommendation to the dean and faculty to con- 
fer the degree. 

Administration and Further Regulations 

The M.A. program is administered by Stephen 
Bevans, S.V. D., Director. Inquiries concerning the pro- 
gram should be directed to CTU Admissions Office. 
Further regulations for the M . A . program are contained 
in the M. A . Manual. 


Aim of the Program 

The Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies (M. A.P. S.) 
is a professional degree designed to assist people in 
enhancing their ability to serve as ministers in the church. 






Building upon previous ministerial experience, the 
M . A . P. S . provides education in the foundational areas 
of theological disciplines, a focus for developing selected 
pastoral skills and an integration of these skills within the 
framework of a general theological understanding. The 
M.A.P. S. is intended for persons who have had some 
ministerial experience and who wish to prepare for new 
ministries or to enhance their effectiveness in their 
current ministry as sisters, brothers, deacons, lay persons 
or priests. 

Although the M.A.P. S. draws upon the same 
resources as do the General Academic M.A., the 
Research M.A. and the M.Div. degrees and shares 
aspects of their objectives and design, it is, nonetheless, 
a distinctive program with its own focus. 

As a program providing not only general theological 
understanding but also specific ministerial skills and 
competencies, the M . A . P. S . differs from the other two 
M.A. degrees and so cannot be pursued concurrently 
with them. 

The M . A . P. S . differs from the M . Div. in that it 
is designed to meet the special needs of persons 
changing ministries or upgrading ministerial skills after 
some years of experience in the field. The M.Div. is 
meant to be initial preparation for ministry. 

Work done in CTU's Certificates in Biblical 
Spirituality, Liturgical Studies and Pastoral Studies can 
be applied toward the M.A.P. S. degree. Work done 
in the M.A.P. S. program can be applied toward the 
M. Div. degree, although the two programs cannot be 
pursued concurrently. 

Admission Requirements 

In addition to the general admission requirements, 
at least three years of experience involving the com- 
munication of religious values to others are required. 
Some background in theology, philosophy, history, 
psychology and sociology is recommended. The 
adequacy of this background will be determined 
according to the student's specific program. 


Individually Designed Course of Study 

Recognition of the diverse backgrounds of the adults 
who enter the Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies Program 
necessitates special attention to the interview and 
appHcation process, academic advising and opportunities 
for personal and spiritual development that will facilitate 
the integration of theory and praxis in ministry. 

Individually designed courses of study enable the adult 
learners with diverse backgrounds to achieve their objec- 
tives in pursuing the M.A.P. S. 

Program Requirements 

The equivalent of two full-time academic years (72 
quarter credit hours) is required for the M . A . P. S. degree. 
Advanced standing and transfer of credit may be granted 
for previous theological study, to be applied to the 
theological disciplines of the M.A.P. S. Decisions on 
advanced standing and transfer of credit are based upon 
transcript evaluation and student interview. Candidates 
must maintain a 3.0 cumulative grade point average. The 
program must be completed within seven years. 

Specific hour requirements fall into three areas: 
theological disciplines, pastoral skills and integrative 

Theological Disciplines: 42 hours 

The theological areas are meant to provide some 
grounding in the major theological disciplines. They 

Biblical Studies 12 hours 

Church History 3 hours 

Systematic Theology 12 hours 

Ethics 6 hours 

Liturgy 3 hours 

Cross-Cultural Ministry 3 hours 

Pastoral Care 3 hours 

Pastoral Skills: 21 hours 

The pastoral area provides work in selected areas 
of pastoral skills. The 21 hours are distributed in the 
following manner: 

Area of Concentration 18 hours 

Elei^tives 3 hours 




Integrative Experiences: 9 hours 

Nine hours are required in the integrative area. 
Three of these hours are to be completed in the first

Aim of the Program < 

The Doctor of Ministry program at CathoHc Theo- 
logical Union is an advanced degree for ministers (lay and 
ordained) with significant experience in ministry, who 
wish to integrate advanced mastery of theological con- 
cepts with continued development of pastoral skills to 
enhance the practice of ministry. 

Admission Requirements 

Prerequisites; Applicants hold an M.Div. degree or 
the equivalent of three years of graduate theological 
studies with a cumulative average of 3.0 or better. 
Applicants have completed five years of full time 
ministerial experience. Ordinarily such experience followed 
the completion of their first ministerial degree. 






Documentation: Applicants submit a detailed cur- 
riculum vitae and have all college and graduate level 
transcripts forwarded from the appropriate institutions 
to the director of the D.Min. program. Applicants also 
submit a 1000 to 1500-word essay, that includes a) a state- 
ment of their personal goals in this program, b) a descrip- 
tive self-assessment of their ministry, and c) an annotated 
list of their readings in theology and ministry over the 
past two years. Letters of reference must come from an 
ecclesiastical superior and from someone who can attest 
to the appHcant's academic ability. A nonrefundable 
matriculation fee must accompany the application. CTU 
reserves the right to interview applicants. 

Deadlines: The deadline for completed applications 
and supporting materials, including the interview, is May 1. 

Program Design 

The D. Min . program balances the acquisition of con- 
tent and the development of skills, brought together in 
an integrated fashion to enhance the practice of ministry. 
The program utilizes peer learning, supervised learning 
and self-directed learning experiences along with class 
room instruction. 

Structure and Duration of the Program 

A total of 15 courses is required for the sucessful com- 
pletion of the program. 

Core Colloquia (3 courses) 

Supervised Learning Experience (1 course) 

Electives (9 courses) 

Thesis (2 courses) 

The minimum time required for the course work, aside 
from the thesis, is one academic year plus an intensive 
three-week session in September. Preparation and 
approval of the thesis ordinarily require one academic 
year. The entire program ordinarily may not be completed 
in less than two or more than five years. Flexibility in the 
program allows participants to pursue the degree on a part 
time basis, as long as they complete Core Colloquia I and 
II their first year. . . : -,: 


Core Colloquia: In the three core colloquia, students 
explore various methodological frameworks for ministry 
in light of their own ministerial experiences. In Core Col- 
loquia I and II participants will think together about the 
nature of ministry and its methods, largely through case 
studies. Strong theoretical foundations wed to personal 
ministry experiences in the context of interdisciplinary, 
peer learning make the colloquia central to the D.Min. 
degree and to the development of a community of learn- 
ing. Core Colloquium III specifically prepares students 
to write their theses. 

Supervised Learning Experiences: Supervised learn- 
ing experiences are track-specific. They may involve work- 
ing with M . Div. or M . A . P. S . students in collaboration 
with faculty or another supervisor. 

Electives: The nine electives are ordinarily distributed 
to include five courses in the area of concentration and 
four courses outside the area of concentration. 

Thesis: Students write the thesis upon completion of 
course work and admission to candidacy. The thesis 
addresses the nature and practice of ministry in the area 
of the concentration, identifies a specific concern in 
ministry and brings to bear both the appropriate literature 
and critical theological reflection. The thesis is ordinarily 
125 to 150 pages in length. 


1. Mid-term Evaluation: The mid-term evaluation 
takes place at the end of the Fall quarter of the 
first year for full time students and ordinarily at 
the end of the Fall quarter of the second year for 
part time students. It is part of Core Colloquium II. 

2. Candidacy Evaluation: The candidacy evaluation < 
assesses the student 's development in the program 

and determines whether the student is on a path 

that points to successful completion of the degree. 

This central evaluation in the D. Min . program oc- t\ lyt jm 

curs after Core Colloquium III. ! 1 


3. The Final Evaluation: The evaluation of the 
finished thesis is the final evaluation. A committee 
of five (including the D.Min. director, the thesis 
director, one or two members of the D. Min . com- 
,., mittee and two other D. Min . students) makes this 

The Concentration in Cross-Cultural Ministries 

The term "cross-cultural ministries" is understood here 
to designate ministries exercised by persons who are not 
members of the culture in which they are ministering, or 
ministries exercised in a minority culture. In the latter case, 
the minister may or may not be a member of that same 
minority culture. Thus, the program hopes to address both 
outsiders and insiders in varied cultural situations. 

This is a concentration for persons who already have 
experience in cross-cultural ministry, not for those who 
wish to enter it for the first time. Consequently, the five 
years of ministerial experience prerequisite for the entry 
into this concentration must have been in a cross-cultural 
setting and in not more than two such settings. 

The concentration focuses on areas of ministry where 
cultural differences raise special challenges to pastoral and 
missionary activity. Skills development focuses on tools 
for analysis of cultures, communication across cultural 
boundaries and differing styles of leadership appropriate 
to living on cultural boundaries. Theory will center on 
the understanding of cultures, the region where culture 
and theology intersect and formation of communities 
within and across cultural and faith boundaries. The con- 
centration is interdisciplinary and ecumenical. 

Supervised Learning Experience: This is accomplished 
within the context of I 460 Mission /Ministry /Spirituality 
Integrating Seminar, Training for Cross-Cultural Ministry, 
I 575 Mission /Ministry /Spirituality Integrating Seminar, 
or a similar approved setting. D.Min. students help in 
supervising and leading reflection for students in these 
courses and themselves reflect upon what is involved in 
helping people enter cross-cultural ministry. 

Electives: The electives are chosen so that at least two 

D MIN courses allow for a deepening of theological understand- 
ing, at least two courses allow for further development 


of the methodology of cross-cultural ministry and at least 
one course allows for addressing cross-cultural knowledge 
from a setting other than the student's own. 

The Concentration in Liturgy 

The concentration in liturgy has the goal of addressing 
the entire worship event in order to make it more authen- 
tic and effective. It combines historical and systematic 
studies with emerging pastoral methods to enable students 
to construct worship in the light of various liturgical tradi- 
tions and to assess the effectiveness of worship in par- 
ticular communities. It is a concentration for persons who 
already have experience in liturgical ministries, not for 
those who wish to enter this ministry for the first time. 
Consequently, the five years of ministerial experience 
prerequisite for the entry into this concentration should 
include a significant focus on liturgical ministry. 

Supervised Learning Experience: This is ordinarily 
accomplished within the context of various practica 
courses offered in the curriculum. D.Min. students will 
help in supervising these practica courses and assist 
M.Div. and M.A.P. S. candidates to develop skills in 
liturgical leadership while simultaneously reflecting on 
what is involved in helping others to minister liturgically. 

Electives; The study of liturgy distinguishes between 
foundational (culture and worship, eucharist, initiation, 
liturgical theology, liturgy and time, ritual studies) and 
ancillary topics (liturgical environment, liturgical music, 
liturgy and pastoral care, rites of vocation, rites of heal- 
ing, oriental liturgy, popular religiosity, liturgical 
preaching). Candidates in this concentration must 
demonstrate mastery of all foundational areas of study. 
Ordinarily three of the nine electives should be taken in 
these foundational areas. Given the ecumenical context 
and commitment of the school, it is strongly recom- 
mended that students concentrate some part of their work 
in a liturgical tradition other than their own. 

Administration and Further Regulations 

The D.Min. program is administered by Edward Foley, 
O.F.M. Cap., Director. Inquiries concerning the program 

should be directed to his office. Further regulations for 

the D.Min. program are contained in the D.Min. ^ MIN 
Manual. * 




The World Mission Program at Catholic Theological 
Union has been developed to allow students to choose a 
mission focus in any of the various degree programs of- 
fered by the school, as well as to meet the needs of 
furloughed and returned missionaries who come to the 
school for one or more terms of continuing education. 
It also challenges all theological education at CTU with 
the reality of cultural and religious pluralism in the global 

It is with this purpose that CTU has shaped its World 
Mission Program. It has organized biblical, historical, 
systematic and ethical courses with mission as their focus 
and/or content. It has created a specialized intensive 
course to help people prepare for cross-cultural ministry 
and a Mission /Ministry /Spirituality Integrating Seminar 
to aid returned missionaries to process both their 
experience abroad and their re-entry. It has sought out 
pastoral placements most suitable for reflection on the 
church's mission. 




The World Mission Program is supervised and 
developed by the interdepartmental World Mission Forum. 
In this work forum members are aided by the Department 
of Cross-Cultural Ministries and by the Mission Advisory 

All degree programs provide for a concentration in 
mission. The requirements for each follow

mately be planted in the

Master of Divinity with Pastoral Theology Concentration 

The Master of Divinity with a concentration in 
pastoral theology is designed to provide students with the 
opportunity to coordinate their studies in ways that will 
enhance preparation for the general practice of ministry 
in a variety of settings. It is rooted in a recognition that 
all the disciplines of ministry are important in develop- 
ing a coherent and integrated approach to pastoral work. 
The concentration employs an interdisciplinary design 
which enables students to pursue a chosen focus from a 
variety of perspectives. 

Individual students working with their advisor plan 
the specific program in keeping with their background and 
future ministerial goals. In addition to CTU's course 
offerings, students working in pastoral theology have 
access to a wide variety of course offerings in pastoral 


care, spirituality, social justice ministry and pastoral 
theology in neighboring schools. The Chicago area also 
provides a wide range of opportunities for developing the 
knowledge and skills needed for an integrated approach 
to pastoral work. 

General requirements for the concentration in pastoral 
theology are the same as those Hsted for the M . Div. pro- 
gram. Concentration in pastoral theology is achieved by 
these further specifications of the regular M.Div. 

— a seminar in pastoral theology, providing the 
organizing framework for the concentration 

— two other advanced courses from the disciplines 
of ministry, providing an opportunity for the stu- 
dent to develop an interdisciplinary perspective on 

— a focus for study around one or two themes rele- 
vant for the practice of ministry chosen by the stu- 
dent with department approval 

In five of the courses which the student takes 
as a regular part of her or his degree work, the 
student will focus on the chosen theme or 
themes in the written work for the course. 
Courses from at least three different depart- 
ments should be represented among these five 
courses. The chosen theme or themes will also 
provide the focal point for the integrating 
seminar in the final year. 

— Ministry Practicum II taken in a parochial setting 
or one which maximizes the awareness of the im- 
portance of a coordinated approach to ministry 

When Ministry Practicum II is not taken, an 
alternate integrative ministry experience, deter- 
mined in consultation with the advisor, will be

The Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies may be taken 
with a concentration in pastoral care, pastoral ministry 
or pastoral theology. The requirements are the same as 
those listed for the M. A.P.S. program. The 18 hours in 
the area of concentration are selected in consultation with 
an advisor. 


The Continuing Education Office structures a variety of 
opportunities for professional and personal development 
for those who are experienced in ministry. 

Key among the values in CTU 's vision of Continuing 
Education is flexibility for the students to choose the 
courses most suited to their specific goals. The Certificate 
and Sabbatical Programs are structured to achieve those 
goals. It is also possible to select courses without any pro- 
grammatic structure. In all cases, academic advisement 
is provided to help insure that a student's goals are met.

Sheptytsky Institute in Eastern Christian Studies at Mt. Tabor 

Catholic Theological Union offers students the oppor- 
tunity to integrate study of the theology, liturgy and 
spirituality of the Christian East with a lived experience 
of what Eastern Christians look upon as the summit of 
their spiritual tradition: monasticism. The opportunity is 
through CTU's Sheptytsky Institute at Mt. Tabor, a 
summer session at Holy Transfiguration Monastery in 
California, a r , 

Students can earn six quarter credits applicable to 
M.Div., M.A. and M.A.P. S. requirements. The 
summer experience normally consists of a month-long 
stay at the Ukrainian Catholic Monastery of the Holy 
Transfiguration (Mt. Tabor) in Redwood Valley, 
California, where participants enter as fully as possible 
into the Hfe of the monks. This includes adherence to the 
full schedule of personal prayer and fasting, as well as 
participation in four to five hours of liturgy a day. In 
addition, participants attend two three-credit courses in 
Eastern theology, spirituality and liturgy. A field trip to 
San Francisco is included, with visits to local Eastern 
parishes, both Orthodox and Catholic. At the conclusion 
of the summer program, a debriefing seminar is held to 
facilitate re-entry into "the world" from the monastic 

Holy Transfiguration Monastery is located two and 
one-half hours north of San Francisco in the scenic 
Coastal Range mountains of Northern California. It is 
the home of a dozen monks and is gaining a reputation 
throughout North America as a center for authentically 
Eastern spirituality. Worship is conducted in English, 
following the Byzantine-Ukrainian usage. Although Mt. 
r Tabor is a men's monastery, both men and women are 

welcome in the Sheptytsky Institute. 

The program is named after the Servant of God 

OFF -CAMPUS Metropolitan Audrey Sheptytsky (tl944), primate of the 
STUDY Ukrainian Catholic Church, pioneer of East-West 
OPPORTIJNITIFS ecumenism, and restorer of the pristine heritage of the 
Ukrainian Church. 


The Director of the Sheptytsky Institute in Eastern 
Christian Studies at Mt. Tabor is Rev. Andriy Chirovsky. 
The Sheptytsky Institute was founded at CathoHc 
Theological Union in 1986; its summer program remains 
affiliated with CTU even though the Institute's head- 
quarters have moved to St. Paul University in Ottawa. Fur- 
ther details about the summer intensive at Mt. Tabor may 
be obtained from the Office of the Dean. 

Israel Study Programs 

Catholic Theological Union offers four special pro- 
grams which combine scripture study and travel in biblical 

Each Fall, for a full quarter, the program involves 
lectures on Scripture and guided exploration of biblical 
sites in Greece, Turkey, Israel and Egypt. A re-entry 

seminar/ retreat is conducted at CTU at the conclusion 
of the program to help participants relate their overseas 
experience to theology, spirituality and ministry. Students 
may earn up to 12 quarter hours of credit appHcable to 
M . Div. , M . A . or M . A . P. S. requirements. The overseas 
course work concentrates on the history and archaeology 
of Israel and on a variety of Old and New Testament tradi- 
tions. The 1992 Fall study will be conducted by Barbara 
Bowe, R.S.C.J., and Marianne Race, C.S.J. In 1993, 
Leslie Hoppe, O.F.M., and Marianne Race, C.S. J., will 
conduct-the Fall quarter study. 





Every other Spring CTU offers a three-week intensive 
in Israel, during the latter part of the quarter. The next 
program will be conducted by Barbara Reid, O.P., in the 
Spring of 1993. For the first nine weeks of the quarter 
students may take at CTU two full quarter courses 
designed to be completed during that time frame; a third 
course (B475 History and Archaeology of Israel) will also 
be offered. This course will serve as direct preparation for 
the overseas experience. During the three weeks in Israel 
students will have guided tours of major biblical sites. Par- 
ticipants in the entire Spring program may earn 12 quarter 
credits applicable toward degree or certificate requirements. 

In 1993 only, in late spring, Carolyn Osiek, R.S.C.J., 
will direct a two-week study tour, "Churches of Paul and 
Revelation," in Turkey. This archaeological and biblical 
study tour is distinct from the Spring Israel Program; 
however, it will follow that program directly and it is 
possible to participate in both. 

An Israel Retreat centered in Jerusalem and Galilee 
is conducted each August by Carroll Stuhlmueller, C.P. 
Conferences in the 20-day program develop the religious 
impact from the biblical and archaeological memories of 
the sites visited and provide orientation to biblical sites, 
scripture passages and reflection points. A portion of each 
day is spent visiting biblical sites for prayer and reflection. 

On all biblical study opportunities students are 
accompanied by biblical faculty from CTU; expert 
resource people overseas also participate. 

The Director of the Israel Study Programs is Marianne 
Race, C.S.J. Further details can be obtained from her office.
